    Ok. So for my 3rd anniversary of customizing, I thought I would do something big. So here it is. My Cybertron Primus 3.0. I tried some of the stuff I did for the last one I made for a commission http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/307672-battle-damaged-cybertron-primus.html and also gave him a different paint job based on some art work I found. He is my favorite one to date.

    Gave him a semi flat black base coat, dry brushed steel and aluminum, gray, blue and shades of red. Added some copper and yellow highlights with some reds and a little blue.

    Very impressive! I love how the detail gives the figure a sense of scale, especially on the bot mode.
    Can't wait to get my Takara version later in the year.

    It has that Don Figueroa artwork type vibe to it. I like it.

    Looks good man. Happy 3rd :)  The only thing I would do different is add more red in the chest where the circle is in the center and go down to the first cross piece. I hope this makes sense because I know what I mean,

    Excellent work! This looks great, and I can imagine how long it took. Your version is finally respectable in my eyes :)  I was really excited about this guy back when he came out, but something just never seemed "realistic" or legit about him.

    I think it was a combination of the colors they chose, and also the REQUIREMENT of the stupid planet keys/gimmicks. I wonder if anyone ever modded him to where the keys wouldn't be required....it's a plan I have someday.

    I just use my finger for the leg parts and a pen for the chest. Stupid gimmick.

    Yep thats the one. Love that artwork. If I had time to do a repaint of Primus these colors would do justice for him. But thats my opinion.

    I liked the things I did with the 2.0 and tried it with this. Minus the battle damage.

    I'm assuming that you did but I have to ask... Did you disassemble him before painting? I took mine apart about 90% tonight to disable the gimmicks... wow, what a pain! I don't need the planet key thing anymore though :)
